Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Rangers to score in both halves at 6/5. The Gers have been scoring plenty of goals and against this leaky defence, they could enjoy a very successful day.

2 We fancy:

Rangers to win and both teams to score at 11/5. As well as scoring plenty of goals, Rangers also concede quite a few. They have kept just seven clean sheets this season, and could concede again away from home. They have more quality going forward so should outscore their opponents.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Rangers to score over 3.5 goals at 11/2. Rangers have the ability to really punish this County defence and if they were to get an early goal, the home side could really struggle.

Midfielder Jordan Rossiter and striker Kenny Miller are both back in training and should be ready for first team football in the next few weeks, but this game might come too soon for them. Ross McCrorie and Ryan Jack are both still injured and miss out on Sunday.

Ross County vs Rangers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Rangers forward Alfredo Morelos has been in good form this season

Ross County’s spell in the Scottish Premiership looks like it’s going to end in disappointment, as they sit five points off survival with just nine games of the season left. As for Rangers, they need to ensure they pick up some momentum following their successful Florida Cup exploits if they are to keep hold of their Europa League spot.

The game does not look like providing County with the three points they desperately crave, and at 7/1 the bookies make them big outsiders for this one. Looking at recent form, it’s hard to suggest anything other than a comfortable Rangers win. County have won just four games all season and have conceded the second highest amount of goals, while they haven’t won a game since the start of November, a run stretching over 11 games.

Rangers have slumped in form slightly of late, winning just one of their last four league games. However, at 4/9 against this Ross County side, the odds represent decent enough value and given that Rangers are the second highest goal scorers in the league, they will be confident of getting the three points.

15 of Rangers’ 22 league games so far this campaign have seen over 2.5 goals, so the 8/11 odds for the same result look promising. Both teams have also scored in 14 of their fixtures to date, which will give County some hope of maybe taking something from the game. You can back both sides to get on the scoresheet at 19/20.

With Rangers finding the net so frequently – 41 times in total – they will be hoping to add to their tally. Top goalscorer Alfredo Morelos is 11/10 to score anytime and if Rangers are going to score, he is likely to get on the scoresheet, so this price looks tempting. You can also find him to score two or more at 9/2, which wouldn’t be the biggest surprise.

Predicted Score: Ross County 1 - 3 Rangers
